Does this make any sense or is it just a coincidence.

On my home network with a Linksys WRT54G router,the wireless computer dis-connects when I try to link to a few websites.I then have to reboot the PC to establish my wireless connection again.When I do a right click on the status icon,it shows that the connection is fine and working good.

The wired computer does not do this and it has no site connection problems.

What do you think??? Is this possible???

verify you are using service pack 2 on your xp machine and all your updates are done. uninstall the wireless driver and utility out of add/remove programs, then reboot, install the dirver only, not the utility. the WRT54G router works very well with the windows wireless utility that comes with sp2. if it is a desktop then you can make your IP static instead of dynamic, this helps you stay connected when sometimes you may lose a signal.
